We provide asbestos removal services to home owners who have asbestos in their homes that they need to remove.  We regularly demolish older houses that contain asbestos.  It is common to see on the news, stories of asbestos being dumped in residential streets and on the side of the road in and around Sydney. The removal of illegally dumped asbestos waste is also a service we provide.

Unfortunately there are instances where a new home or building is under construction and the owner discovers that asbestos has been buried underneath the ground.  This occurs because someone has illegally buried the asbestos, in the backyard or under a driveway.  This is a common problem in both residential and commercial works.

Even though the Asbestos was not dumped there by the current owner, it is their responsibility to get rid of it.

Likewise if you are renovating an old home in Sydney, it is very possible that your house contains asbestos. This will have to be identified, removed and disposed of.

We can provide a fast solution to effectively clearing your property of asbestos and obtaining an Asbestos Clearance Certificate as proof that the asbestos has been removed.

Our Asbestos Removal service includes;

  • Bonded Asbestos
  • Illegally dumped Asbestos
  • Asbestos removal from a garage or walls
  • Sheet roofing removal
  • Fibro wall cladding removal
  • Contaminated soil removal
  • Cement fibro sheet removal

We regularly demolish houses that contain asbestos.  Unfortunately for many Sydney home owners, it is very common that older Sydney houses do contain asbestos. 

It is usually discovered when the owner proceeds with demolition works or it is discovered during a renovation or alteration.  In some instances asbestos can be contained where there is no chance of fragments becoming air-borne or causing a health risk.  If this is possible and is deemed a safe and suitable solution our team will advise you.

Asbestos can be found in many old Sydney houses. It is classed as a hazard and must be removed by a licensed Contractor who complies with the Work Health Safety Regulations. Do not try to remove it yourself.

Dumping of asbestos is illegal and does not comply with the Australian Standards. Rogue contractors often dump their asbestos waste to save money on disposal costs.

At the completion of an asbestos removal job a Clearance Certificate is issued to the owner, detailing all the site details as well as verifying that the site is free from asbestos contamination. This certificate is issue by a certified and competent WorkCover approved assessor.

Like all our services we offer free, no obligation quotes on all our services.  Contact Us to discuss your project.

Asbestos was commonly used in the building industry in the 70’s because it was a sturdy material and ideal as fire-proofing and insulation. Unfortunately, studies have found that asbestos cause serious lung diseases like pleural plaques, asbestosis and lung cancer. If you have asbestos in your home you should get it removed. If the asbestos is in a good condition, it is not broken, you should leave it alone. Removal of Asbestos should be carried out as soon as possible if the asbestos is in bad condition; that is if it is in pieces, cracked or broken. Asbestos is usually found in older homes in the house walls, eaves, awnings, gable or garage. It is important to remove it in order to be safe.

If you have asbestos in your home remember these tips:

  • Don’t Cut It
  • Don’t Drill It
  • Don’t Saw It
  • Don’t Break It
  • Don’t Dump It

Houses built in or renovated before the mid 80’s will most likely contain asbestos. Many home owners carry out simple renovation works like sanding walls to repaint or  carrying out extensions, but unknowingly they are working on asbestos containing materials.

There are safety requirements that must be adhered to when removing asbestos.  There are also legal requirements.  An asbestos removal company ensures that their personnel who work closely with asbestos are properly trained, qualified and wear the proper safety wear to minimize the level of exposure to asbestos during the removal.

The most common requests we receive are:

  • Remove asbestos from a house
  • Remove illegally dumped asbestos

If you have received a notice from Council that you have to remove asbestos from your home, you will most likely have to provide an Asbestos Clearance Certificate to prove the works have been done.  If you remove the asbestos yourself, you will be unable to obtain a clearance certificate as the work has not been carried out in accordance with the statutory regulations.

We provide an affordable asbestos removal service to Western Sydney home owners as well as providing an Asbestos Clearance Certificate from a suitably qualified person that is recognised by WorkCover NSW.
